EXCELLENT training session today. Strength seems to have improved across the board, to a greater or lesser extent. The yoke walk was not the heaviest I've done, but according to Dan it was quick and looked comfortable, and I need to time future walks at this weight to prepare for the competition. Speaking of which, the requirements for the grade I am entering are as follows:

Strength Quest - H.W. C Grade. 

Yoke 300 k.g @15mtr time or Distance -60 second time limit. 

Log Lift for max – Start weight – 100 k.g. 

Deadlift Max (Raw) –Start weight 210 k.g 

Farmers walk 100 k.g.@25 meters time or distance 60 second time limit.

These numbers are all comfortably achievable for me, with the one exception being 100 kgs on Fatboy, my nemesis and still a challenge for me despite his recent alterations... I'm hoping between now and June 9th my OHPress work will get me in a better position for this event.
Everything else is going to be awesome.
Back to the Muscle Pit tomorrow to continue with the building of our Strongman facility.
